Our beloved New Orleans Saints are back at training camp in Jefferson Parish, July 26-Aug 22, and I am already hollering WHO DAT! Are you planning on attending? The fan experience has gotten some serious upgrades, y'all. This year will feature covered bleacher seating and a mister! Considering this summer's heat, these upgrades are amazing. Thank you, Saints management! There will also be upgraded concessions and merchandise, which is great...but MISTERS, Y'ALL!!!

Here is some basic info you should know if you are planning on attending the 2019 Saints training camp.

  • The event is FREE. However, fans of all ages must have a ticket to attend. Tickets are on a first come, first serve basis (and going fast). You can claim your tickets here.
  • Parking is FREE at the Shrine on Airline but based on availability. Complimentary shuttles will be provided from the parking lot to the practice facility. So you do NOT have to walk in this heat!
  • Training camp practices are subject to short notice changes based on weather and other factors. So check their official website or social media channels before you head out each day.
  • Select player autographs will be available following each practice if weather, time and other factors permit.
  • Fans are allowed to take photos but video recording is NOT allowed.
  • Fans can see the Lombardi Trophy in the Saints museum inside the lobby of the administrative offices. (OMG!!)
  • Restrooms are available.
  • All fans will be checked with a hand-wand and all bags will be checked.
  • Smoking is NOT allowed on the grounds.
